Manufacture of wood-cement composites from Acacia Mangium: mechanistic study of compounds improving the compatability of Acacia Mangium heartwood with Portland cement
Numerous inorganic compounds were screened to identify those capable of minimizing the inhibitory effect of Acacia mangium heartwood on the setting of cement. It was hypothesized that the most effective compounds would be ones that could accelerate the hydration of cement and form complexes with inhibitory phenolic extractives found in the heartwood of A. mangium. Our hypothesis proved correct since compounds such as SnCl4, AlCl3, and FeCl3 and/or their ionic species that were able to bond with...[Show more]
